Mainz | Rheinhessen

Mainz and Rheinhessen also bring an international award to the region! In the international comparison, in which the winners of the respective national competitions competed again, Weingut Thörle, located in the middle of the Grand Cru locations Schlossberg, Hölle and Probstey, convinced the jury from all Great Wine Capitals.

Our new Best Of Wine Tourism Award winners for 2021 from Mainz and  Rheinhessen are fixed! The ten-member GWC jury, chaired by Mayor Michael Ebling selected the winners in six categories.

The bulk of precipitation in Germany occurs in the summer, while in the southern wine-growing countries, it rains primarily in the spring, autumn and winter. Here, rainfall generally decreases during the final stage of ripening; in the south, rainfall increases dramatically as the harvest approaches. These climatic factors have a pronounced influence on German wine.

Weingut Thörle

In the middle of the Grand Cru locations Schlossberg, Hölle and Probstey, the Thörle Winery has created very modern pleasure rooms. The new Hofgut am Norenberg with its stylish vinotheque invites (inter)national guests in front of the glass front with limestone walls, walk-in wine climate control cabinet and barrique cellar to taste noble top wines at the granite wine bar: from Riesling to Pinot Noir and Silvaner.

Weingut Dreissigacker

Dreissigacker Winery covers 48 hectares and has been certified organic since 2007. The name Dreissigacker does not stand for light weights, but for particularly powerful, fine mineral and elegant wines.

Sustainability was also the basic idea behind the construction of the new place of activity, which the jury honoured with a Best Of Wine Tourism Award in the corresponding category "Sustainability in Wine Tourism".

me and all hotel mainz

"We live and love Mainz" - says the me and all hotel about itself and it shows this among other things in wine events, which the hotel realises together with the association "Die Mainzer Winzer": From wine tastings in a cosy atmosphere to indoor market breakfasts. Grapes around the room numbers, pictures of wine festivals in the elevators and on the corridors complete the wine flair of the modern hotel.

Pollers Häusje

The jury praised the fantastic and intensive cooperation with Rhine-Hessian winegrowers and the regional menu: The Pollers Häusje restaurant, furnished in a cosy country house style, is a place to arrive, refuel and enjoy - and now also a winner of the 2021 Best Of Wine Tourism Award in the category "Wine Gastronomy."


WineFlow stands for high-quality offers in Flonheim, which is well developed for tourism. Hotels, restaurants, excellent vinotheques and members of the Generation Riesling have joined forces to form WineFlow since 2012.

Hotel Weingold in Guntersblum charms its guests with regional wine cuisine in historic setting. The entrance leads from a small street underneath an ages old gate into the yard. Martin Luther stayed here, they say, maybe in 1521 on his way to the emperor's parliament in Worms. The small village of Guntersblum with its old half-timbered houses is only twenty kilometers down the Rhine valley from the dome city.
